Lack of crews to fight fire
A training exercise meant not enough firefighters from Bath were available to tackle a fire in a flat just minutes away from the city's fire station.
One crew from the Cleveland Bridge station was available to answer a call to the fire in a top floor flat in Bathwick Street at 10.23pm on Friday, but three other crews had to be drafted in – from Brislington and Speedwell in Bristol, and Wiltshire.
A small fire was found in the property and there are no reports of any injuries.
A spokesman for Avon Fire and Rescue said: "Other appliances from Bath were out on a training exercise and that is why we were covering it with some Bristol and Wiltshire appliances."
